AI comes into Art


AI comes into Art

Since artificial intelligence made an entrance into the world of arts, it has taken artists from various fields such as painting, writing, screenwriting, music, etc by total surprise. So let’s review some artificial intelligence artworks across various fields.

The art of Painting with AI

With the advent of deep learning models in painting, we have witnessed a number of interesting projects. Artistic visualization tools take the user’s text input and turn it into an attractive and somewhat abstract painting using artificial intelligence. With the help of artificial intelligence, drawing applications and platforms are improving every day. Furthermore, the quality of their output images is constantly improving. Dall-E2, Wombo AI, The Night Cafe, and MidJourney are some of the well-known examples of such platforms, that have achieved impressive results. The figure below shows some of the photos produced by Wombo artificial intelligence for the AIEX platform.

AI in Poetry

The availability of big data and the ability to process large volumes of data allow for the creation of literary works. In order to create something as complex and mysterious as a poem, thousands of photos were fed to the artificial intelligence model, along with poems written by humans. AI was also  equipped with an algorithm to find correlations between images and text. To compose believable poetry, the model also learned visual patterns, rhythms, and other languages. Additionally, the AI model has been taught to relate colors and images to emotions and metaphors. During its training, the model was given an image and asked to compose a poem that not only relates to the photo but also reads like a poem rather than a series of meaningless algorithmic sentences.

Verse by Verse is an AI-powered tool that simplifies the process of becoming a poet. Users can choose up to three American poets from a list that includes Emily Dickinson, Walt Whitman, Edgar Allan Poe, etc to form a structure for their poem. Once the user enters the first line of their poem, the tool suggests additional lines. The user can finish the poem at any point by accepting, rejecting, or changing suggested lines.

Of course, the mastery of artificial intelligence in literature is not limited to poetry.

The following poem was generated using Verse by Verse about the AIEX platform, however, it is admittedly vague or even meaningless.


AI in Cinema

Cinema has also been impacted by artificial intelligence. Of course, cinema is where various arts meet, but we’re going to look at the use of artificial intelligence in scriptwriting. The script of the short film Sunspring was created using artificial intelligence and without any human involvement, which makes it arguably the first of its kind.

AI in Music

The importance and popularity of AI in music have increased significantly in recent years. In essence, music is a collection of notes which can be analyzed and understood by AI algorithms. So it comes as no surprise that scientists have made significant progress in the field of artificial intelligence for music. Google’s Project Magenta was initially widely recognized by the AI community when it was launched in the summer of 2016. A convolutional neural network fills in the gaps in a piece of music using Coconet, the AI model used in this project. The team used 306 pieces written by Bach to train the AI model. It’s capable of filling in the gaps in Bach’s music pieces containing randomly erased segments, with AI-generated music in Bach’s style.

Let’s look at the leading AI companies in Arts.

  • The Amper tool leverages the power of artificial intelligence to produce music for games, media, etc. The tool uses the sample library and datasets in its library to create new music. Amper was the most popular music production tool before Shutterstock. Shutterstock overtook Amper in late 2020 and is now one of the largest producers of content for creators.
  • The AIVA is the most prominent AI music application. AIVA specializes in classical music production and produces custom music pieces for clients like Nvidia, and TED. The platform’s core consists of deep learning algorithms, trained on classical music.
  • The Loudly is a music production company in Berlin. Their platform can rewrite music pieces or generate custom music pieces using GAN deep learning algorithms.

Artificial intelligence has also been widely used for song recommendation. Recommender systems powered by data science and machine learning can suggest new music tracks based on the listener’s interests to create a varied and enjoyable listening experience.
